SEARHC clinics to stay open for Veterans Day

All SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) health care facilities will be open regular business hours this year on Monday, in honor of Veterans Day.

Many SEARHC patients and employees are veterans, and SEARHC said it is proud to honor the sacrifice of these men and women who helped protect the United States and the citizens of Southeast Alaska.

SEARHC also reminds patients who are veterans that it now has staff who are trained to help get them enrolled for Veterans Affairs health care services.

There are four employees who are coordinating VA enrollment services at SEARHC — Juanita DeRose (364-4465) for SEARHC patients in Juneau, Judy Mills-Brown (966-8307) and Michael Lang (966-8488) for Sitka patients, and Nellie Kookesh (966-8814) for patients who live in other SEARHC communities.

Please contact your local SEARHC health care facility or local SEARHC patient advocate if you have any questions.
